Today, reply is on the sacred meanings for “love” (charity) that are present through the ministry of Jesus Christ. “Jesus” is a Greek-language form for “Yeshua” and means “salvation”. Divine love is communicated through features within a relationship such as accord, accountability, balance, commitment, discipline, forbearance, forgiveness, giving, kindness, redemption, restraint, sacrifice, salvation, unselfish service and suffering, rather than by hugs, kisses, smiles, and tender touches. It is written: Zechariah 7: 8-14, King James Version (KJV): 8 And the word of the LORD came unto Zechariah, saying, 9 Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Execute true judgment, and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother: 10 And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart. 11 But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear. 12 Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the LORD of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of hosts. 13 Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the LORD of hosts: 14 But I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations whom they knew not. Thus the land was desolate after them, that no man passed through nor returned: for they laid the pleasant land desolate. The fighter at “Yahoo!

Does Jesus Christ’s name mean Love? ❤️!

And Does Jesus Christ love us? ♥️!

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. (Romans 13: 8-10, KJV)

Fred XX00 I”, Christians all must learn to use a sacred way of thinking and speaking about love that is very different than what we use to talk about our feelings concerning family, friendship, and romantic partners. The aspect of divine fullness who appeared on the earth using flesh and human form to establish atonement for sin also is to be known and spoken of (i.e., has a name; has a reputation) on the basis of his ministry and works as a prophet, rabbi, and teacher, who demonstrated love as an inseparable element from the makeup of GOD. Other attributes of divinity that Jesus Christ displayed include balance, faith, forbearance, forgiveness, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, personhood, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. In the course of seeking to survive captivity, exile, relocation, and scattering, many of the covenant people sought to assimilate and “blend in” with the heathen and idol-worshiping population that was forced to coexist as an empire (e.g., the Assyrians; the Babylonians; the Persians; the Medes; the Romans) through military conquest. Practice and study of the sacred law viewed as an abstract, impartial, and impersonal summation for the “law and the prophets” became the primary focus for continuing and preserving the covenant relationship of promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Covenant relationship with GOD through the life essence (breath; spirit; word) imparted from divinity was scorned as impractical, superstitious, and filled with mysticism. Few correctly understood the concept of perpetual covenant as being a commitment by divinity—who is immortal, incorruptible, and invisible—that would require the end of mortality; the embodiment on the earth of spirit substance imparted from the makeup of GOD; the restoration of eternal life for created beings and living creatures that was previously granted in Eden as well as the transformation of mankind to exist as the children of GOD, divine offspring, joint heirs with Jesus Christ, and the new creation. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Sandi Patti:

(1.) 1st Corinthians 13: 1-10, King James Version (KJV): 1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. 4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

(2.) Mark 12: 28-34, KJV: 28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? 29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. 31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. 32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: 33 And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. 34 And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

(3.) Galatians 5: 14-23, KJV: 14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. 16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

(4.) Revelation 1: 4-6, KJV: 4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (5.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pUqJUfi1TQ.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
